Razer Viper Mini Review
Razerthink – The Razer Viper Mini, priced at $39.99, is the third variation of Razer’s esports mouse launched in the summer of 2019. The Razer Viper Mini is an excellent wired gaming mouse. It’s a smaller version of the regular Razer Viper and is one of the lightest mice we’ve tested so far. While the sensor performance isn’t as good as other mice in the Viper lineup, it’s still excellent, and its low click latency ensures a responsive and lag-free gaming experience.
This Mouse is far from perfect, many features should be left out, but some things are better than their predecessors. Unfortunately, this Mouse doesn’t have as many extra side buttons as other Viper mice, but on the bright side, each controller is programmable. When Razer finds an idea that people like, it sticks to it and doesn’t let go. The Viper Mini, at $39.99, is the third variation of Razer’s esports mouse to launch in the summer of 2019.

The Razer Viper Mini looks the same as the Razer Viper but is slightly smaller. This Mouse has an overall black, sleek design. Besides having the RGB logo on the back, The Mouse also has a small RGB stripe around the bottom of the back of the Mouse. The Mouse also has a CPI toggle button under the mouse wheel. This Mouse feels very sturdy and sturdy.
Quality is the same as the Razer Viper, and the Razer Viper Ultimate has no rattling or wobbling. The Mouse is smaller and lighter than Razer’s most lightweight (0.13 lb) Mouse, measuring 4.66 x 2.11 x 1.51 inches. The Mouse is perfect for smaller hands. In addition, this Mouse is brilliant for fast and precise movement across the mouse pad at low CPI settings.
This Razer Viper Mini is lightweight black plastic with a matte finish covering almost every part of the Viper Mini top. The Left and right mice are slightly jagged. The CPI cycle button is just below the rubber-textured mouse wheel, and the forward and backward buttons are in their usual places, just above your thumb on the right side. The Viper Mini is also a consideration for lefties.
The Razer Viper Mini uses a Razer “Speedflex” cable. The traditional braided fabric cable design is on one side, which prevents tangling but tends to retain tangles when looped.
Despite the lower DPI score, the Razer Viper Mini performs well; having five CPI presets instead of the usual three or four you find on other mice comes in handy here. While most high-end gaming mice have sensors that go up to 16,000 CPI, I don’t mind the Viper Mini hitting 8,500; as an 800 CPI player, I find going up to 16,000 useless and can’t do it alone.
It’s a good size for those with smaller hands, and the lack of grip doesn’t stop it from feeling completely in control in action; the 100% PTFE feet offer smoother movement for twitch response.
Features and Software
Like all Razer products, the Viper Mini has supported the company’s ultra-fine Razer Synapse configuration software. Synapse is very simple, easy to use, especially with an uncomplicated mouse like the Mini.
You can easily create configuration and macro profiles, adjust five DPI presets, and set custom lighting.
The Mouse can store a single profile in the onboard storage. While that’s less than I’d like, it’s pretty realistic for a budget esports mouse.
The Razer Viper Mini is an excellent mouse for ultra-light gaming enthusiasts. This Mouse is one of the lightest mice.
The gaming performance and click latency are excellent and should be comfortable enough for any hand with a fingertip grip.
